are proud to present

A Plant Identification Intensive

with Darryl Patton

April 26-27, 2014

10am – 5pm

Double M Farm, Inc

Anderson, SC

$185


It is with great pleasure and delight that we offer this weekend intensive
featuring Darryl Patton! 

If you’ve ever attended any of Robin’s classes, plant walks, or presentations, you have heard her talk about Darryl.  He was the leader of the very first plant walk Robin ever attended.  And yep, that book that she shows all of her students, Mountain Medicine: The Remedies of Tommie Bass, was authored by Darryl Patton.  He really is a walking encyclopedia of plant knowledge!  Darryl is an internationally known herbalist, a primitive and wilderness survival expert, teacher, wild foods expert, and operator of a wilderness survival training school in the mountains of Alabama.  For 12 years he spent thousands of hours studying with the late A. L. “Tommie” Bass, one of the last old mountain herb doctors who taught Darryl the uses for thousands of plants.
His passion in life is "to pass the 'old way' of using medicinal plants to his students and others wanting to continue the tradition of gathering wild plants as food and healing."  Read Darryl's biography on his website, thesouthernherbalist.com

We are so fortunate to have Darryl come to South Carolina to share his knowledge of the plants with us.  You do NOT want to miss this golden opportunity to spend two days walking the woods, fields, and creeks with Darryl as he talks about the plants, trees, and mushrooms, and learn how to prepare some of the wild foods! 

Class size is limited, so register early to secure your spot!
